Virginia Court Rules for Trump in Travel Ban, Order Still Halted

On Friday, a federal judge in the state of Virginia passed a judgment that the current president’s travel policies were okay, thereby increasing the chances that the case would go on to the supreme court of justice as the judgment was in sharp contrast to judgments achieved by both a Maryland and Hawaii court.

The court district judge in the United States, Judge Trenga Anthony, refuted claims by Muslim defendants who claimed that President Donald Trump’s executive orders on the 6th of March temporarily impeded the acceptance of asylum seekers, refugee, and foreigners from six nations deemed to be terror prone as an act of discrimination.

The judgment was not in alignment with two former court rulings that had put a stop to the executive orders before its execution by the administration on the 6th of March.

It remains grounded for the time being.

President Trump has said he intends to challenge the judgments as he deemed them bias and counter-productive. He said he would go as high up as the supreme court of necessary, and with the discrepancies in rulings now, it just might go all the way up to the supreme court.

Judge Trenga, who was appointed by the former president of the United States George W. Bush, declared that the case as supported by the Council on American-Islamic collaborations (which is civil rights body for Muslims), discovered that a lot more than 20 persons who had come before the court in favor of the case had been able to prove that the travel ban put in place by the president had an adverse effect on their lives as they were unable to see and visit their loved ones.

The judge also ruled that the ban, which was a modification of one earlier passed in January, was totally within the powers of President Donald Trump to make. Since it is an executive decision about migration, the president had every right to issue the order.

He also said that since the ban did not specify religion, the court cannot look at the sayings of the president about a ban on Muslims to conclude what was the intentions and aims of the person who put together the law in the first place.

President Trump has stated that the travel order was crucial to keep the nation from attacks by terrorists, but his first executive decision was stopped by a judge ruling in Seattle, and an appeal court in San Francisco, because there were concerns that it went against the United States’ laws forbidding prejudice against religions.
